About Kedar Ghat

The Kedar Ghat houses the Gauri Kund, a small water pool which has an image of Gauri, Lord Shiva’s wife in the eastern wall. It is said that the water in this kund has healing properties. The Kedareswara Shiva Temple, at the Kedar Ghat has great mythological importance and it is believed that anyone who visits this temple gets blessings as the same after visiting Kedarnath Temple. According to mythology, the Kedar Ghat was the original site of Manikarnika Ghat and the Gauri Kunda on the ghat steps is referred to as “Adi Manikarnika.” These riverfront steps are referred to as greatest of the bathing tirthas in Kashi. Kedareshvara is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas in India. A pucca ghat was constructed at this spot by the Government of Uttar Pradesh in 1958. It finds mention in the Puranas and is believed to be among the oldest ghats in Varanasi.
